Seamount geomorphic feature layer

  • Title: Seamount geomorphic feature layer
  • Abstract:

    The seamount geomorphic feature layer represents the spatial extent of the seamounts of the worlds oceans based on interpretation of the SRTM30 plus v7 global bathymetry model. The layer is one of the 25 layers that make up the global seafloor geomorphic features map (Harris et.al. 2014). Seamounts are “a discrete (or group of) large isolated elevation(s), greater than 1,000 m in relief above the sea floor, characteristically of conical form” (IHO, 2008). Seamounts are thus defined as peaks that rise over 1,000 m above the seafloor, calculated based on the SRTM30_PLUS model. We adhered strictly to the requirement that seamounts are “of conical form”, thus distinguishing “seamounts” (having a length/with ratio th ratio ≥2). The criterion of a length/with ratio .
